Way up high in the apple tree (arms stretched up high)

Two little apples smiled at me (point to cheeks)

I shook that tree as hard as I could (pretend to shake tree)

Down came the apples (make downward motion with arms)

Mmm, they were good! (rub stomach)


songSong for letter A

Oh, I wish I was a marching army ant.

Oh, I wish I was a marching army ant.

Oh, I'd marchy way up high,

Until I could touch the sky.

Oh, I wish I was a marching army ant.
